It does not check and I don't think it should attempt to do it. The only task of
this script should be to automatically promote the [approval: done] state to 
[approval: ready to merge] after the grace period has expired, because humans
tend to forget that. Anything beyond that, in particular an attempt to judge
whether the approval is valid or not, and whether a CI failure can be ignored or
not, should be left to humans.
